Wandering about and looking for a quick and simple breakfast, Pax looked clean and the foods on display appeared fresh and appetizing. It's counter service, with food served in disposable containers, even when you eat in, but the coffee was decent enough (not always the...More

We ate here twice on a Saturday, before and after a matinee. Food was fresh and tasty. Servers were pleasant and accommodating. Check out the wraps--loaded with meat and reasonable. Only suggestion: Unlock the rest room door.

We needed a bite to eat before getting on a train, and ended up here after deciding we didn't want a more formal restaurant. There are tons of choices--we got paninis they warmed up for us, but you can get salads, pasta, quinoa bowls, quesadillas,...More
